BJP’s Chandigarh candidate Kirron Kher on Friday hit out at her Congress rival Pawan Kumar Bansal for allegedly spreading “rumours” that no one turned up for her rallies and dared him to prove if he could pull a bigger crowd than her.
“Come to any place alone in the city and I will also reach there without accompanying anyone. Then we will see who attracts the crowd,” she said.
“Rumours are being spread that nobody comes to my rallies…shame on you. Is the Congress fighting elections on its own or a PR company is helping the party?” Kher asked.
Kher, 66, claimed that she had got many development works done for the people of Chandigarh in the past five years.
“Bansal sahib, you had been non-existent here and remained in Delhi. We know you can hire big PR companies but elections are fought on the basis of the work done. Remember that the BJP and Kirron Kher will win the election with a huge margin,” she said.
Kher is pitted against Bansal and AAP’s Harmohan Dhawan from the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat.
She had won the seat in 2014 by defeating Bansal by a margin of 69,642 votes.
